In all likelihood though, unless he actually has permanent brain damage (which hasn't been reported and would likely prevent him from ever clearing a physical exam anyway), then the risk of Pronger being significantly injured from another hit would be about the same as any other NHL player.

Whether Pronger perceives that risk as being worth it or not is anyone's guess, but the quack medical opinions being expressed in every thread about Pronger are too much for me to take. Please, before posting anything about Pronger's chances of reinjury or saying "1 more hit and he's done", go do some actual research on concussions.
Unless you're a neurologist and you're not letting on, there's some dissonance there. Never mind the fragility of recently concussed brains/recently repaired neural connections.
